    Thanks Michael.

    Any way to cover the clear coat fracture until repainting?

    Try this Keith to get your images to show inside your posts:

    Click on the smaller version of the image you wish to include.
    Scroll down, past the larger image and into the lines of HTML code.
    Locate the line that says: HTML CODE. It will also include the characters img source.
    Highlight the code in the box and then copy it. You can use "Control C" to copy if on a PC.
    Now paste that code into your post.

    Unfortunately there is not. It is the compound and polish that has gotten into those fractures.

    Hi Keith,

    I would agree with Guz regarding the "scratches" it appears to be a type of common clear coat fracturing which is essentially a form of failure. No way to repair or hide to my knowledge besides repainting.

    Regarding the stain, this is something that could potentially come out by getting more aggressive. I really need to do an article on how to perform a spot stain or stain removal, but essentially, the below recommendations all apply, but you just decrease your working area to the scratch/stain, and then shorten the amount of passes.

    If you could answer these questions, we can help guide further:

    What exact dual action polisher machine are you using?

    What exact backing plate it is equipped with?

    What exact pads do you have?
